    Do you have a favorite song that graced the soundtrack to one of your favorite movies of all time?

    One of these is "Don't Box Me In," from the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola-directed B&W film, Rumble Fish. The entire soundtrack was composed by Stewart Copeland while his band, The Police, for which he plays drums, were doing sessions for what would be their last album to date, Synchronicity.

    The one notable song off of the Rumble Fish soundtrack is "Don't Box Me In," which features former Wall of Voodoo (best known for "Mexican Radio") singer Stan Ridgway on vocals, harmonica and additional keyboards.

    There is no doubt this song sounds like a 1978-81-style Police song, and that can be linked only to Stewart Copeland.

    I hope the mods can make this a sticky thread.

      I would say The Wallflowers' 1998 cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" off the American Godzilla movie soundtrack from that same year. The sound of that music is amazing - guitars, drums, and all. Even Jakob Dylan's powerful, commanding voice makes it a great cover tune anyone can enjoy in my own honest opinion. The awesome late-90s driving rock feel makes it a true cover song that I would recommend to anyone, even those who have seen the movie like myself for an example, regardless of how they measure it (the movie itself) up.
